The problems of today’s world will be solved by high-functioning groups with excellent skills in collaboration and innovation. If you work on people issues as a coach, executive, entrepreneur, leader, facilitator, or change-maker, you are well aware of the amount of conflict and disagreement that arises even between the most well-intentioned teams and individuals. We need spaces outside of our organizational and family contexts to practice what it means to be part of a high-trust group and to sort through the dynamics of tribalism, power struggles, and differing worldviews.


The Academy is a space of personal growth, professional development, purpose clarification, and camaraderie amongst high-functioning leaders from different backgrounds. It is an intentional, tight-knit, cohort style learning group for advanced techniques of creating group coherence by using our own cohort’s dynamics as the experiential material for learning and practice. Personal issues will surface and the intention is to help participants clarify their own learning by being a part of the process.


Join this group to practice skills, frameworks, and techniques for creating cultures that bring people together in a higher order without sacrificing individuality.

Some of the techniques we will build capacity in include:

  • Attuning to and working with subtle energy in the context of communication and group dynamics.
  • Spotting and navigating differing values and worldviews in the room.
  • Developing a meditative or pure awareness perspective to give space to what needs to happen in a group without judgement.
  • Techniques for working with shadow material and trauma that inevitably show up.
  • Honing skills as a facilitator and mediator of conflict that emerges in group spaces.
  • Using movement, somatics, and creative intervention in relationship with more rational approaches.

The format:

  • Meeting over 6 months together
  • Two day-long, in-person workshops (Start & Closing of program) – Hosted in the Bay Area
  • Twice / month Zoom practice & training calls
  • Cost – $1250

Next cohort: March 1, 2022 – June 1, 2022

    I work with executives, leaders, change makers, and individuals to navigate the trials and tribulations of running organizations, leading teams, maintaining healthy relationships, and enacting their full power and purpose.

    There are often hidden ways that leaders “leak” power, leaving them feeling tight on time, emotionally drained, and out of alignment with themselves. Through transformational coaching techniques honed over a decade with master teachers, I help my clients to see the ways that they are creating inefficiencies and go to the root issue so that they can live more fully, authentically, and with a sense of greater space and purpose.

    If you are considering hiring a coach to explore how to improve your situation and find more ease in work and life, feel free to reach out for a  free 30-minute intro call to see if we might be a good fit for working together.

    Thank you,

    Spencer
